Dries Van Noten AI Collage

I was fooling around with Dries Van Noten prompts in various AI apps, and I ended up making a collage. I started with a met museum costume institute image that I scribbled on with the Procreate app. I love looking at Dries Van Noten clothes for artistic inspiration. Putting his name in the AI was fascinating and amusing. I wonder if he would be appalled. I don’t think he would approve of this palette. His use of color is masterful – he effortlessly switches from the subdued to the over the top. Read more

Ideas for a weekly art review

AI for the Holidays!

This week I’m trying to come up with some ideas for a weekly art review. I’m hoping to start a new process for the new year. I would like to use this blog space to track my progress a little better, and with that in mind, I came up with the idea of using a weekly template. The template will be a what/why/when/where/how series of questions of what I am working on. Even if it’s not an extremely productive week, I can still use the template to describe what I have been looking at and thinking about from an art perspective. And If I didn’t work on anything? Then a few sentences to describe why I didn’t work on anything. With this in mind, I’ll try to describe last week’s work. Read more

AI Art: Flowers for days

It’s been over nine months since I wrote my first AI Art post. So much has advanced in the world of AI Art in such a short time. I vacillate between being fascinated by what it can do, and horrified by how addictive it is. It is unsettling to think that certain kinds of art-making might actually become obsolete. For example, I learned from the wombo discord that you can now make almost perfect seamless pattern tiles! The ones below are not quite seamless, but I am sure that at the rate AI art is advancing, the ability to make flawlessly repeating pattern tiles will soon be here. Read more

AI Art: Digital Brushstrokes

I have always adored any art that could be considered brushstroke art- that is, the brushstroke is the art. See: James Nares, Yago Hortal. One could argue that the abstract expressionists were the originators of this style, but the artist that truly paved the way for this aesthetic was Roy Lichtenstein. His brushstroke was more of a statement on the abstract art that preceded it. But it’s also beautiful enough and decisive enough to cement the pure aesthetic pleasure of isolating a brushstroke. It is also a welcome departure from the egoic nature of the abstract expressionists – “Look at me, I’m painting. I’m an action painter,” and then they all go get drunk at the Cedar Tavern. Lichtenstein’s take is more thoughtful and distilled. Read more
